News: Big Thunder Mountain Movie Update.

A few days ago we spoke about new plans for a Big Thunder Mountain Railroad movieWell Disney Imagineers have recently revealed that the attraction will get new updates to the backstory of the attraction, as well as an enhanced queue line similar to recent Haunted Mansion updates.

The updated backstory is told as follows:


Barnabas T. Bullion
"Barnabas T. Bullion is the founder and president of the Big Thunder Mining Company. The longtime mining magnate comes from a powerful East Coast family and considers gold to be his very birthright by virtue of his oddly appropriate name; in fact, he considers the ultimate gold strike to be his destiny. And that is why he is having so much trouble with Big Thunder Mountain. According to superstitious locals, Big Thunder Mountain is very protective of the gold it holds within, and the unfortunate soul who attempts to mine its riches is destined to fail. And so far that prophecy is coming to pass. The mine has been plagued by mysterious forces and natural disasters ever since. And yet the Big Thunder Mining Co. is still in operation. In fact, Bullion is discovering new veins of gold and digging new shafts every day, offering a closer look at the Big Thunder mining operation than ever before. But a word to the wise for anyone attempting to visit the mountain: watch out for runaway trains."



So with the new updates does i look like they are moving more towards the Disneyland Paris version of the attraction, with a mysterious entity playing evil tricks on the miners/ townsfolk? Will this new storyline inspire the future movie? One thing we know for sure, you'll have to "hang on to those hats and glasses, 'cause this here's the wildest ride in the wilderness!"
